    United Airlines on Friday increased its checked-baggage fees by $5, following a similar move in January by JetBlue Airways. The first checked bag is now $35 each way, the second, $45. Travelers can avoid the increase by prepaying for bags in advance. The checked-bag prices remain $30 and $40 if the fee is paid at any time before online check-in.

    A 70-year-old man in China's Hubei Province was infected with coronavirus but did not show symptoms until 27 days later, the local government said on Saturday, meaning the virus' incubation period could be much longer than the presumed 14 days.A longer incubation period could complicate efforts to contain spread of the epidemic that has so far killed more than 2,000 people and spread outside China.

    Amid a scramble to control the spread of COVID-19, Chinese authorities believe, based on samples and tests, that at least 135 wild animals were poisoned by disinfectants being used to curb the illness, United Press International said based on reports from China's state-owned news agency Xinhua. The mass die-off was reported in the megacity of Chongqing, in southwest China, which, in 2016, was home to over 30 million people. At least 17 species of animals, including wild boar, weasels, and blackbirds, have been affected, according to the Chongqing Forestry Bureau. Tests have shown that the animals didn't die of any diseases such as coronavirus or bird flu, UPI said. They will be buried in disinfected sites.

    I don't know how possible that is but it would certainly shake things up. It might become more likely if Erdogan starts a losing war.

    An agreement between the United States and the Taliban could come as soon as February 29 in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement released Friday. According to Pompeo, the U.S. "reached an understanding with the Taliban" on a reduction of violence that could lead to the signing of a U.S.-Taliban agreement next week. The signing is dependent upon the "successful implementation" of the agreement, Pompeo said. Last week, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the deal includes a seven-day "reduction in violence." A senior State Department official confirmed the reduction in violence period will start tonight Afghanistan time, and the signing will take place on the 29th in Doha between a Taliban representative and U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan Zalmay Khlalilzad. "Intra-Afghan" negotiations would start "soon thereafter" to eventually lead to a ceasefire in Afghanistan, Pompeo said. "The only way to achieve a sustainable peace in Afghanistan is for Afghans to come together and agree on the way forward," he said.

    An experimental nuclear reactor in Idaho could be the first of its kind in the United States: a commercial reactor providing power using fuel that reduces nuclear waste. The small power plant could power about 1,000 homes and can run almost autonomously for 20 years. This project comes from Oklo, that claims its reactor would be the “first ever” one to generate power through nuclear waste. But Oklo is just one of many groups working on ways to make localized and safer nuclear power as a bridge between the energy status quo and a more carbon neutral future. “Every scenario presented by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for keeping the planet from warming more than 1.5 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels, relies on nuclear providing a growing share of our electricity,” the environmental blog Grist explains. There are a few overarching ideas these aspiring innovators share. First, much smaller nuclear reactors—whether that’s relatively small versions of “full size” commercial reactors or truly localized small reactors like Oklo’s—are inherently safer. Imagine trying to wipe up a spill of a few drops of soda versus an entire two-liter bottle. It’s also easier and cheaper to build containment for smaller reactors. Second, many of these innovative designs want to use a new or different format of nuclear fuel in their reactions. Some are using recycled waste products, some are using chemical reactions that can generate power without reaching “critical” state—and smaller reactors in particular require a lot less fuel, which, means there’s less toxic waste. Oklo’s plans are a combination of both. At just 1.5 megawatts, the plant would be one of the smallest plants ever build—even during the early days of nuclear energy. The smallest exigent nuclear plant in the world produces 11 megawatts, and even Russia’s new floating power plant makes over 30. But the nondescript design looks like an A-frame house and would be easy to squeeze into many more locations than operating nuclear plants. In December, Oklo received a permit to begin building their new Aurora plant, which is the first and only permit ever issued in the U.S. to a nuclear plant using something other than a light water (“water-cooled”) reactor. The specific mix of fuel they plan to use is called HALEU for short: “High-assay, low-enriched uranium (HALEU) promises to provide more power per volume than conventional reactors, and its efficiency allows for smaller plant sizes,” Power explains. “It also promises longer core life and a higher burn-up rate of nuclear waste.” More at: https://news.yahoo.com/worlds-tiniest-nuclear-plant-coming-193900256.html

    And many of the natives will welcome them. I think we will end up seeing a truly united Europe (including Russia) coming out on the far side. But I think it will break up into regions after that, Russia will control one of the regions.

    A key Chinese respiratory disease expert said that some discharged coronavirus patients could still carry the virus and be infectious, potentially posing another complication to Beijing’s efforts to control the epidemic. Zhao Jianping, the head of the coronavirus containment team in worst-affected Hubei province, said a minority of patients who were discharged from hospital after tests showed they were negative for the virus later tested positive again. China counts patients whose throat or nose swabs show up positive for the virus in a nucleic acid test, and those whose CT scans show lesions in their lungs, as infected cases. The criteria for deciding if a patient has recovered varies between provinces, but in general Chinese hospitals require people to test negative twice in a row, and to show no obvious symptoms such as a fever. Patients who are released are supposed to check in with their hospital and can face retesting—which is when some tested positive again. “That means during the period when a patient deemed recovered leaves the hospital and goes back home, they could infect the people they are in touch with,” Zhao told Beijing News (link in Chinese, Feb. 18). “As this kind of situation exists, we encourage recovered patients to also be put on quarantine for 14 days,” he said. One possible reason for the later positive results could be due to the varying quality of testing kits, he said, meaning the patients were not actually fully recovered at the time of release. In an interview (link in Chinese) with Southern People Weekly yesterday (Feb. 20), Zhao said he considered this a “highly dangerous” situation: “Where could you put such patients? They could infect others being at home, but they would also occupy the stretched resources at hospitals if they are there.” More at: https://qz.com/1806050/chinese-coronavirus-expert-recovered-patients-may-still-be-infectious/

    EU leaders were facing budget chaos today at a bruising first summit since Brexit as four wealthy nations refused to fill the gap left by Britain's departure. The 27 leaders reached a stalemate after arguing into the early hours in Brussels, with talks on the trillion-euro budget resuming for a second day today and this afternoon there was still deadlock. The UK's departure has left the bloc with a €75billion (£63billion) hole in its finances over seven years and the budget battle has exposed bitter divisions between EU members. Germany wants to spend more on climate change while France is seeking more money for a joint defence, with poorer nations determined to keep their generous EU payouts. But the so-called 'frugal four' of Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden are unwilling to pay more to plug the gap. Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte, who came prepared for a long-haul summit by carrying a biography of Frederic Chopin, said he did 'not plan to put my signature' to the latest compromise proposal. EU figures are seeking a figure of 1.08 per cent of the bloc's combined GDP to cover the six years from 2021 to 2027, but the frugal nations are unwilling to go above the current 1 per cent. Meanwhile nations that receive 'cohesion funds' want more still, with authoritarian Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban telling reporters today they want 'at least 1.3 per cent or close to that.' The UK's departure last month meant it was not dragged into the row over money that would have been sure to spark fury among eurosceptics.

    New Mexico House Republicans say voter anger over a red-flag gun bill and overspending will help them reclaim the majority in 2020. House Minority Whip Rod Montoya said Thursday that Republicans will take back the New Mexico House in 2020 and challenge Democrats in key swing seats. Republicans captured the House in 2014 for the first time since the President Dwight Eisenhower era. Democrats retook the House in 2016. The New Mexico legislative session ended Thursday after the Democratic controlled-body passed a $7.6 billion with massive spending increases.

    President Trump's new acting director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell, has already made major changes at the agency, including ousting the No. 2 official. Former acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire and his deputy, Andrew Hallman, resigned on Friday. According to The New York Times, Grenell told Hallman, who has worked for national intelligence and the CIA for three decades, that his service was no longer needed. The Times also reported that Grenell — who was only officially tapped into the role on Thursday and who says he will not be the nominee for the full-time role — also made a slew of his own new hires on Friday, including an expert on Trump conspiracy theories. One hire is Kashyap Patel, a senior member of the National Security Council and former top aide to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the former House Intelligence Committee chairman. Patel was a lead author of a 2018 memo that accused FBI and Justice Department officials under former President Obama of overstepping their surveillance authority ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Patel has reportedly been given permission to "clean house" at the agency. The shakeup comes as reports say Trump was frustrated with Maguire and alleged his disloyalty after House lawmakers were briefed last week on Russian interference in the 2020 election to help reelect Trump.

    More good signs. Last week we noted Johnny McEntee (pictured right w/ Stephen Miller) was promoted to run the White House personnel office responsible for filling hundreds of top political jobs throughout various federal agencies. Mr. McEntee replaced Sean Doocey, who moved to the State Department. The personnel office has been a key point of contention for the administration as several political appointments later became weak points with people not in alignment with the policies and objectives of President Trump. The objective of McEntee would be to assist in finding and vetting the right MAGA person, with the right MAGA skillset, for the right job. Today Axios is reporting: Johnny McEntee called in White House liaisons from cabinet agencies for an introductory meeting Thursday, in which he asked them to identify political appointees across the U.S. government who are believed to be anti-Trump, three sources familiar with the meeting tell Axios. Behind the scenes: McEntee, a 29-year-old former body man to Trump who was fired in 2018 by then-Chief of Staff John Kelly but recently rehired — and promoted to head the presidential personnel office — foreshadowed sweeping personnel changes across government. But McEntee suggested the most dramatic changes may have to wait until after the November election. Trump has empowered McEntee — whom he considers an absolute loyalist — to purge the “bad people” and “Deep State.” McEntee told staff that those identified as anti-Trump will no longer get promotions by shifting them around agencies.
